My pet, pet peeve is when people use the term "exponential" without knowing what it actually means. Something is "exponentially" bigger than something else is a particularly meaningless statement. The authors of this paper make note that the growth of infections over time is initially exponential then tapers to a power curve. The theory, to paraphrase, is we're not a homogeneous collection of perfectly spaced, single network cellular automaton.
I have in the past worked from Home when I needed to work on some document. Never an issue.
So with school being closed in Germany, I decided to work from home and to maintain social distancing
Day 1 : Single Monitor (compared to 2+1) sucked. VPN connection Sucked more. Daughters Tik Toking was getting on my nerves
Day 2. Changed Wireless to Wired internet and still VPN sucked big time . Ban on tik tok lead to a very angry and bored teen which made me fear for my life.
Day 3 : Drove early to work . Still social distancing as 70% of workforce in Home. All issues of Day 1 and Day 2 resolved.
Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it
Australian TV soap Neighbours has announced it will not film this week as a precaution, after reports suggested a person working on the show had come into contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19.
"These people looked deep within my soul and assigned me a number based on the order in which I joined." - Homer
The only reason I know that show exists is i was looking for a TV program with a lot of seasons to do testing of my TMDB ("the movie database") library. It looked terrible, and the more i found out about it the more surprised i was that it is actually filmed, much less watched.
